Right outside of Yellowstone on the Montana side is the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. This center is a non-profit that rescues grizzly bears and wolves and also provides education to visitors.
After our tour of the animals we were invited to go inside the museum, they just displayed a few things to learn a bit more. This section is probably more appropriate for someone who is not on a tour, but it was nice to take a walk around.
Outside there is a display of bear safe containers. When containers want to be certified for bear safety, this is where they come for testing. Kobuk it seems is very good at getting into containers, so they give him the containers and if he can't get into them in a prescribed period of time (don't remember what the time is) then they are certified as bear safe.
After that we all went into the shop. The shop had a good selection, but my favorite thing was that there was a giant bear chair, and that was just fun.
